Sigh of Relief: Modern Warfare 2 PC Not Delayed

After 421 very long pages on the official Infinity Ward Modern Warfare 2 forum packed with anger and uncertainty regarding a rumored delay for the PC version of the upcoming shooter, the game developer finally broke silence and confirmed that all versions of Modern Warfare 2 will be hitting on November 11.

Ryan Bowling of Infinity Ward tweeted: "No delay on PC for Modern Warfare 2. You'll also have Prestige Mode in PC as well as lots of Steam support. Hopefully min specs will be soon"

Those 140 characters don't contain a lot of detail, but the word of no delay along with Steam support should bring a smile to the faces of many PC gamers.

To celebrate this good news, let's take a look at the latest trailer:

  • no dedicated servers..

    "If you have never played on a PC, and your multiplayer experience has only been delivered to you via matchmaking, then you will never really understand. But try to imagine a host hosting a game while never turning his console off, and you can always reach that room and play there whenever you want, night or day, because its always on. Now imagine that host has a Pentagon grade internet connection and his X360 can handle 64 players in that room. On top of that, the guy whos the host is actually resurrected Ghandi, so you will all be treated with respect, anyone using racial slurs, being offensive or just detrimental to gameplay experience via TKing or exploiting glitches, is going to be removed from that server forever. Now imagine dozens and dozens of custom maps running on that server, which you will get for free, because IWs not making them. Then imagine entire communities and forums built around that one room (server). You recognize people who visit that same room, you befriend them, you have fun with these familiar folks. The story goes on, and that's what were missing. All of it is gone."

    read that and you'll know why that just kills the game for the PC community.

  • The PC community are the ones who built the Call of Duty Franchise in the first place.This will come back to haunt them.

  • Assuming that the other news I heard is true (that they dropped the dedicated server option and modding support)

    ...this just means I can go out and not buy it on time instead of waiting to not buy it.

    Hopefully that one turns out to be untrue as well though.
